Let Me Weep



Let me weep
Let me weep that I may be satisfied
That I may flush out this pain deep within
Deep within my heart
This pain that causes me to…ohhhh!
This pain!
Birthed from betrayal, loss and grief
Let me weep!
Let me weep and rid myself of this filth
I don’t wish to choke
I just want to purge myself of this yoke
It’s heavy and it’s…it’s heavy!
It’s been five days now
And it’s been weighing me down
I feel twenty pounds heavier
Let me weep!
Let me get rid of this yoke!
It’s heavy!
Let the dam break
Let the tears pour
Oh, let them pour!
My heart weeps
My eyes leak
Let me weep until I can weep no more
Let me weep!

SLEPT



She tore the envelope open
And she read
Suddenly the clock stopped
Everything around her felt nonexistent
She couldnt think
All she could see was his face
Her hands went numb
As the paper fell to the ground
Memories played
Like a movie being fast-forwarded
She saw pictures of his face move quickly in her head
Her lips moved
But they made no sound
She tried to say his name
But the pain in her throat wouldnt let her
Suddenly the morning turned to evening
The joy turned to sorrow
The smile turned to tears
Her heart broke
No!!!!!!!!!
She screamed but no sound was heard
Her face felt hot
But her fingers were cold
HOW!!!!!!
She wept!
Finally, she found her voice
She croaked his name
But no one replied
He wasnt there with her
But she knew that he would never call her, Nne m
Mama
Mother
Mum
Her son had gone to bed

To never wake up again

LITTLE WRITER GIRL



Little Writer Girl
I see your pain
You sit in the shadows
You pour out your heart in ink
Your sheet is filled
Your lips may be pink
But you speak no words
All you do is sink!
You sink into an abyss of sorrow
You glance at the mirror and see another
A wrong reflection!
You see the “you” you are creating
A picture of a girl lost in the woods
A child forgotten
A lion injured
You sit on your favorite chair
You spill ink like blood
You stain the sheets of white
Every word tells its own tale
You block out the world
And dish out words
You are disappearing with every written word
You don’t even know it
I see the art
But the image of you is faded
I squint to really see you
But it’s blurry
Where are you?!!
Where is the girl i used to know!!!
Come back home!!!
Don’t be lost in the world you are creating
You are needed here too
Don’t relocate to your world of fiction
Someone here needs you to be great
Someone needs you to see herself clearly
But you are far away
Your words remain
But you are fading
What’s going on?
Wake up, Writer Girl!
Come back home!
Love awaits you on this side
Love you will never see if you fade away
Love you deserve
Love you don’t need to earn
Come back, Writer Girl!
Come home!

WISDOM




Search for me if you wish
Great and sound words I’ll teach
A path to truth I’ll lead
I’ll pull out the weeds
To give you counsel so priceless
All because of me you’ll be fearless
See how you glow in the dark
I’ll make you leave a mark
They might envy
They are all folly-savvy
Don’t let them break your spirit
Don’t let them make you retreat
Move closer and let me teach you a thing or two
I’m not too farput on your shoes
I’ll bring you great wealth
I’ll teach you how to live in good health
I’ll make you lead great nations
And give you the antidote to all situations

Take a step closer
Let me introduce myself to you

“My name is Wisdom
Heed to my instructions
And I’ll protect you”

I DO



I do
Only to you I do
You have no clue
How much I love you
I mean it when I say I do
Even in those moments when I don’t feel so
I still do
To you I do
Forever I do
I pledge my heart to you
Forever I love you
Who knew I would love you
To the point of “I do”
Well, here I am saying, “I do”
To serve you and only you
To cherish you and only you
To love you and only you
To laugh with you
To walk with you
To have kids with you
To grow old with you
Here I am with you
At the altar againme and you
Renewing my vows to you
You know I do
I do love you and only you!

PREY




He had her just where he wanted her
Naked and helpless
Her lips were quivering
He could smell her fear
It smelled like “prey”
He could smell himself
He smelled like “lust”
Stunk like sin!
But he didn’t care
He saw her lying on the floor
She was begging
Begging for freedom
Her words were quiet and weak
His punches and blows had weakened her
His kicks had paralyzed her
Her full lips were now bruised
Well, he didn’t need them!
He looked at her swollen eyes
She was crying but he felt no mercy
He had one mission
He had one goal
To devour and be satisfied
He was the predator
And she was the perfect prey
As he unbuckled his pants to fulfill his lust
He felt a blow from behind…HIS HEAD!!!
He froze!
He felt the heat spread from his head
Right down to his toes
Something warm trickled down his back
And, just before the pain enveloped his entire being
He blacked out!
